    Last I heard they turned in the initial batch of signatures and were waiting for a draft ballot title.

    Nevermind it looks like the OFF atty tore IP8 to shreds and I'm guessing they gave up on it.

    Kevin at OFF confirmed that IP8 is dead They were not able to get a fair ballot title from the anti-gun AG's office so they are not moving ahead with the initiative.

    Yes, I think the AG managed to "poison pill" the initiative by stating it would roll back the closing of the "boy friend loophole", by making it sound like already convicted felons and such would be allowed access, if the initiative passed.

    I think IP8 was on the right track, and might just need some tweaking to be resubmitted (IP17?). Use the anti's "I support the 2nd amendment, but...." language against them to draw some type of line in the sand to make banning of common firearms in the future more difficult.
